Matsuzaka watch - Red Sox, Yankees, Rangers

It seems as though the general consensus is that one of the above teams has won. Jackie MacMullan said on NESN yesterday that she believed that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim had stunned the big hitters to win the rights to talk to the Japanese hurler but no-one else seems to have the Angels as players.

There is an article claiming that the Rangers have indeed won at around $30m but also over at Buster Olney's ESPN Insider Blog there is talk that the Red Sox have blown everyone out of the water with a quite simply stunning $45m bid.

If the Yankees do not win then I wonder how quickly the stories will be written that this is great for baseball that the big bad empire didn't get the one they wanted. Of course if the Yankees do win then Yankee fans will have to deal with the media absolutely killing the Yankees and the system for spending more money than anybody else.

The long and the short of it though is that there is no news.

PS: I don't want him in Texas because of my fantasy team.
